Best headliner insulation

I have a JK 4 door. I would like to insulate the roof. Mopar made the first insulating panels but now several other companies such as boom mat has made them. Any one have any experiance or recommendations.
Thanks

i have the Mopar ones and I like them in my 2016 JKU. I had it for about a week without them, and i think they made a definite improvement in sound/heat

+1 for hothead headliners. 107 degrees in TX is literally nothing for them

I installed the Rugged Ridge back in 2015. They work fine and easy to install. These black roofs get pretty hot. Light colored roofs stay a lot cooler.

I don't know about best, they are all good, effective and from my standpoint extremely handy to have around. My favorite headliner insulation though is the Wacoal Jennifer in 38d. Insulates my favorite headliners well.

We just got a 2017 JKU with the factory headliner. Works amazing. On my 2006 LJ I can't hardly keep my hand on the roof on a hot day. It takes forever for the AC to cool off the interior if I've been parked in the sun. On the 2017 you can't feel the heat at all if you are parked in the 105 degree sun for hours. I'm getting the hothead for the LJ soon. I'm also going to spray on some ceramic bead paint before applying it.

Say more about the ceramic bead paint please. What specific kind, what equipment do you use to apply, and I assume the benefit is heat and sound reduction? Haven't heard of someone doing that. Thanks!

That is what Lizardskin is. They make both a heat and sound paint. I've never used it but lots of people love the stuff. I am using just the glass beads mixed into paint as I have 2 lbs of them. The lizardskin stuff uses a latex base which I guess is okay. I'm mixing my beads in with Rustoleum paint for the inside of the top. I'll roll or brush it on. Once it's good and dry I'll put the Hothead liner on. If you go Lizardskin they sell a spray gun for it.

FYI, the micro glass/ceramic beads were developed for NASA to use as lightweight heat insulation.
